myPWS - a new iOS app for PWS owners
« on: January 26, 2020, 03:52:35 AM »
Let me introduce a new iOS app for all PWS owners submitting data to Wunderground:

myPWS

https://apps.apple.com/us/app/mypws/id1467639867?l=en&ls=1


The new app for PWS owners, exclusively for iOS and WatchOS!

You own a weather station that transmits readings to Wunderground.com (WeatherUnderground)? You want to get a quick overview, as well as detailed diagrams with the readings of your weather station and those of more than 250,000 other weather stations of the Wunderground network?

Then myPWS is exactly the right app for you! All you need is: your personal API key, which will be created in your personal account on Wunderground.com for you to retrieve.

Once you've configured access to Wunderground.com for myPWS by entering your API key, myPWS will let you view the latest readings from your weather station, as well as any other weather station registered on Wunderground.com. You can use an area map to search for near or far weather stations all over the world and have them displayed for detailed diagrams and current readings.

myPWS offers you extensive diagrams with the

measured values ​​of the current and the previous day
the last 7 days (per hour / per day)
any day in the past*
complete monthly data*
data of two PWS in one single comparison chart*
combined data of one PWS in a single chart*

Up to two different types of data can be displayed together in a diagram, e.g. to look at temperature and air pressure together in one graph.

Furthermore you can

cache and export data via iCloud our email to your other devices on which you also use myPWS*. This saves data API calls which are limited to 1,500 per day through Wunderground.com via your API key
add more than two stations to your station list*
export diagram data via CSV, PDF or as graphics*

Please note: myPWS requires a Wunderground.com account and a PWS (Personal Weather Station) registered in your account. By registering a PWS you will receive an API key which is needed for the retrieval of data from the Wunderground network by myPWS. The access to PWS measurement data via the Wunderground data server depends on the availability of the WU infrastructure and the WU API services, which are not under the control of the manufacturers of the myPWS app.

* Available via a one-time In App Purchase

Have installed it today and deleted 5 minutes later.
The first feeling was good, but after 5 minutes I gave up.
The app was aggressively and continuously pushing me everywhere to purchase the in app options.
No thanks!

Fortunately I host PWSdashboard from Wim and even in a smartphone view it makes a great job.
